When any app requests to use Facebook, the options are in a different language or in Jibberish... In the top right corner where would usually say 'cancel' it says 'Ghairi.' And where it would say 'send,' it says 'Tuma.' I'm using the latest version of Facebook. I have no idea what's wrong with it, does anyone know a solution?

iPad (3rd generation) Wi-Fi, iOS 5.1, Facebook app

    Ghairi is Swahili for cancel.

    Check your language settings.

    Go to the Home screen and double click the Home button. That will reveal the row of recently used apps at the bottom of the screen. Tap and hold on the app in question until it wiggles and displays a minus sign. Tap the minus sign to actually quit the app. Then tap anywhere on the screen above that bottom row to return the screen to normal. Then restart the app and see if it works normally.

     

    If not try a reboot of your iPad. Press and hold the Home and Sleep buttons simultaneously ignoring the red slider until the Apple logo appears. Let go of the buttons and let the iPad restart. See if that fixes your problem.

    I just had the same problem too.  The iPad language settings are correct.  I'm wondering if it is the App having problems.  I noticed it in Gardens of Time....
